Beth Condley, clinical director of INTEGRIS Children’s at Baptist Medical Center, was recently accepted into the Pediatric Bioethics certificate program at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. It is the only pediatric bioethics certificate program in the world.
The unique nine-month course trains students how to handle a variety of complex issues dealing with futility and moral distress, end-of-life decisions and medical research.
In addition to being accepted into the certificate program, Condley was also accepted in the Nursing Leadership program, which is designed to identify nurses who are recognized leaders who want further training in pediatric bioethics.
The nursing leadership program is highly competitive with only two spots available each year. Upon graduation, Condley will receive a two-year grant to help continue building the clinical ethics program at INTEGRIS.
